Update and special info for the DIY Option folks
The DIY option does not include the jack board. The original plan was to use 2 28pin short ribbon cable jumpers between the main board and the jack board.
However, as I near completion of the pcb parts placement, there is not enough room on the main board to use this approach.
So, what I will be using is called "overlap and solder". There will be 2ea 28pin dual row pin headers soldered into the bottom of the jack board. The jack board is attached first to the front panel, then the main board slides over these pins and is soldered in place. This eliminates the 2 ribbon cables and 2 connectors.
For the DIY version, there are holes on the main pcb where wires or standard pin headers can be soldered. I will try to add signal labels on the rear silkscreen. I suspect most people will want to solder wires. The spacing is standard 0.1in x 0.1in
All the parts will be placed by tomorrow, and it will take 4-5 days to route it. Still on schedule! And all the pcb components have been ordered for the initial production run of 475. As of today, there are 33 pre-orders left.
You can still order your E370 at www.synthtech.com/shop until the last one is spoken for.
